An enchanting rainforest walk begging for you to experience
In the heart of a picturesque National Park, a rare coastal rainforest calls home. Being filled with lush ‎greenery of ancient trees with the aromas of wood, ferns and the moist smell of the bed of the ‎rainforest lingering the air, you cannot help but feel like you are wandering through the depths of an ‎enchanted rainforest.

Certainly can get the rainforest feel.

This magical Rainforest Walk at Mungo Brush in the Myall Lakes National Park truly takes your ‎breath away with the enthralling beauty of plum pine, mock olive, coogera and brush blackwood ‎canopying the Rainforest. ‎

Enjoying the lovely stroll.

8206;Sounds of singing birds fill the stillness, as the crunch sounds of fallen leaves echoes through the ‎tall ancient trees and as you take a step glimpses of wildlife can be seen through the shadows. I felt as ‎if we were lost in a forest of the unknown in complete wilderness, this added even more ‎excitement and thrill to this lovely walk. ‎

An amazing find, two ancient tree roots intertwined.

There is an abundance of birdlife including golden whistlers, figbirds, rufous fantails and satin and ‎regent bowerbirds who call this charming rainforest home. Keep an eye out for the brush ‎turkeys; you can see them scratching the undergrowth (look for their distinctive red head).‎

A view of light trying to shine through.

Other wildlife can be spotted with some including echidnas, eastern grey kangaroos, ring-tailed ‎possums, koalas, carpet pythons and other interesting creatures as well as native wildlife, so do ‎keep an eye out!
The mixture of fauna and flora captivates you as you make your way through the beautiful and ‎dense rainforest which is an easy short 1.5km loop making it perfect for children and families and ‎of course it makes a perfect lovers walk! The walk starts from the northern end of the Mungo Brush Campground ‎‎(the walk is signposted) and connects to other lovely walking tracks throughout the Mungo Brush ‎region. ‎

I wonder who lives in here?

The Mungo Brush Rainforest Walk is certainly one to visit and experience with its pure beauty and ‎enchanting experience.

The Campground is quite popular and camping information can be found on the website. ‎

The lush greenery is incredible.

The Rainforest Walk can be accessed from Hawks Nest, follow Mungo Brush Road for ‎approximately 25km on a sealed road and follow the signs to the Mungo Brush Campground. ‎

Some of the plants & flowers we spotted on the walk.

If you are coming from Bulahdelah from the Princes Highway, take Bombah Point Rd (unsealed) to ‎the ferry crossing where you cross the water with the car ferry and continue along to Mungo Brush ‎Road to the Mungo Brush Campsite which is on the right hand side after Dees Corner Campground. ‎For all information see website. ‎

There is a $8 per vehicle fee to enter the Myall Lakes National Park. ‎

On of the many paths throughout the Rainforest Walk.
